Want To Guess Your Child's Future Profession? Ask Him/Her To Describe A Tree

Last night during dinner, we sat outside with our out-of-town guests and looked at the same tree, and I had an idea. Going around the table, I asked everyone to use their own words to describe it. Funny how the writers were more descriptive and detailed, while the two lawyers dug deeper and were more analytical, but the financial guy was perfunctory and straight to the point. A mathematician might have talked about the distance from the tree to the water feature and other, nearby trees. Want to guess your child’s future profession? Ask them to describe a tree.
